THE 10 BEST GAMES TO BET

RAVENS at JETS

1 p.m., Ravens by 6 ½, 45

HANK’S HONEYS: No one prepares his team better for the start of the season than John Harbaugh. Since 2008, his Ravens have a 10-4 Week 1 record, including 5-1 over the last six seasons with a 204-59 point differential and a 7-2 ATS record in the favorite’s role. The Ravens are healthy after an injury-ravaged 2021 season (no Lamar Jackson to close out the season) and this will be an announcement to the league that they are back. Look for Baltimore to run the ball effectively and for Jackson, in spite of the contract intrigue, to take advantage of an inexperienced secondary. He’ll take advantage of the Jets’ age-old weakness covering tight ends with Mark Andrews. We can’t see Joe Flacco (0-5 as NYJ starter), game manager at best these days, keeping pace against his old team.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Ravens and the over.

GIANTS at TITANS

4:25 p.m., Titans by 5 ½, 44

HANK’S HONEYS: We love the under for starters. The Giants’ defensive strength is up front and it will suit them well here. Derrick Henry may be healthy again but Tennessee’s offensive line is without Rodger Saffold and David Quessenberry this season. Ryan Tannehill is on the downside of his career and he doesn’t have a No. 1 receiver with A.J. Brown traded. That should allow the Giants the luxury of focusing on Henry and getting after Tannehill enough to take pressure off a questionable secondary. Daniel Jones is an enigma for sure but at least he won’t be running away from elite pass rusher Harold Landry, lost for the year. The Titans were big-play prone a year ago and the Giants’ new staff under Brian Daboll should have opportunities to unleash Jones’ big arm, making those six points very attractive. While the Giants are on a 0-5-1 ATS streak in season openers, the Titans have failed to cover in their last five and with the Bills up next, they could be looking ahead.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Giants and the under.

SAINTS at FALCONS

4:05 p.m., Saints by 5 ½, 43

HANK’S HONEYS: The Saints could be the biggest public play of the week but why not? The Falcons, on an 0-7 ATS home schneid, are expected to struggle in the post-Matt Ryan era while most of the matchups favor New Orleans in its first game under Dennis Allen. The Saints have a nasty, quick big-time defense and should be all over Marcus Mariota as he operates behind a weak O-line. The Falcons could struggle to score more than 14 points. The Atlanta secondary is hurting at the safety position and Jameis Winston, one of the many injured Saints last year, should have plenty of time to find comeback kid Michael Thomas, rookie Chris Olave and new arrival Jarvis Landry. The Saints’ O-line might be a question mark but they are a wash against a Falcons team that can’t rush the passer.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Saints and the under.

JAGUARS at COMMANDERS

1 p.m., Commanders by 2 ½, 44

HANK’S HONEYS: There’s a lot more upside with the Jaguars as the teams head into 2022. After suffering through the Urban Meyer debacle as a rookie, Trevor Lawrence gets a fresh start with QB guru Doug Pederson and, while the QB’s preseason was a mixed bag, this is a pretty good spot for him against a so-so defense that will be missing pass rush wiz Chase Young and SS Kamren Curl. Pederson will be intimately familiar with opposing QB Carson Wentz, who was abysmal against these Jags in his final game as a Colt. Travis Etienne is poised for a breakout year after missing 2021 with a Lisfranc injury and it starts here. In spite of some pretty horrid teams, the Jags are 3-2 SU in openers over the last five seasons. There’s sharp money on Jacksonville for good reason.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Jaguars and the under.

49ERS at BEARS

1 p.m., Niners by 6 ½, 40 ½

HANK’S HONEYS: The Bears were 0-5 ATS as a home dog last year, 3-10 ATS overall as an underdog and they haven’t gotten much better, even with Matt Nagy and his staff having left the building. It’s going to be hard for Justin Fields to take the next step if he’s constantly running for his life and this Niner pass rush, starting with a healthy Nick Bosa, is elite. True, Trey Lance is making his first start and no one knows how that will turn out but the guy who led the Niners to last year’s NFC Championship Game is holding the clipboard and could be on the field at a moment’s notice. And the 49ers aren’t going to have to light things up to cover. Bear backers are saying they can’t possibly be as bad as people think. Or maybe they can.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Niners and the under.

PATRIOTS at DOLPHINS

1 p.m., Dolphins by 3 ½, 46 ½

HANK’S HONEYS: Bill Belichick took his team to Florida five days early to acclimate to the heat and humidity in a locale that hasn’t been kind to the Pats (2-7 SU in last nine trips). We don’t know if the Patriots got any better. We do know the Dolphins have. On paper, they have the second-best team in the division. Tua Tagovailoa has new coaches and new weapons, including the versatile Tyreek Hill, while the Patriots pretty much have more of the same. Mac Jones has issues against man coverage and that’s what the Dolphins play. Belichick won’t want to open things up here but this is a good offense that can force his hand.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Dolphins and the under.

BROWNS at PANTHERS

1 p.m., Panthers by 2 ½, 42

HANK’S HONEYS: Is revenge overrated? Not in this one. Baker Mayfield is all about emotion and he’s been waiting for this for months. The Browns never seem to be ready for the start of the season. They are 0-16-1 SU in Week 1 since their last opening week win in 2004. Now they’ve gone through a mess of an offseason with the Deshaun Watson thing hanging over their heads and with journeyman Jacoby Brissett as their starter. Mayfield, meanwhile, doesn’t really have to do all that much. Christian McCaffrey starts the year fully healthy and his blocking unit was upgraded with Bradley Bozeman at center and Austin Corbett at guard.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Panthers and the under.

BRONCOS at SEAHAWKS

Monday, 8:15 p.m., Broncos by 6 ½, 44

HANK’S HONEYS: Maybe this is too easy but is there any scenario where Russell Wilson returns to Seattle in prime time and doesn’t torment his old team? Not one that we can see. He has more weapons than at any time in his career with Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy, Javonte Williams, and Albert Okwuegbunam. Nor do we see Geno Smith being able to keep up using Wilson’s old worn-out weapons. The Broncos have a talented secondary across the board and a vastly improved pass rush that will make Smith jittery. The Seahawks’ home-field advantage isn’t what it used to be. The 12th Man can boo Wilson all it wants. He’ll leave the winner, just like old times.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Broncos and the under.

STEELERS at BENGALS

1 p.m., Bengals by 6 ½, 44

HANK’S HONEYS: Forget the trends that beg bettors to fade Cincy, like the one about Super Bowl losers. On the contrary, the Bengals are in a position to crush the rivals who have historically owned them. They outscored Pittsburgh, 65-20, in last year’s two meetings and there is nothing to indicate that the Steelers can slow them down. The talent gap is huge — starting with Joe Burrow vs. Mitch Trubisky at QB — and the Bengals will enjoy a significant matchup advantage with Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins against the Steelers cornerbacks. Trubisky could struggle behind an offensive line that was a big concern during the preseason.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Bengals and the over.

PACKERS at VIKINGS

4:25 p.m., Packers by 1 ½, 47

HANK’S HONEYS: There are 10 home underdogs this week including this game, which is of particular interest as a divisional game. If you like trends, Week 1 home divisional underdogs are 19-6 since 2009 and 5-1 since 2018. With Davante Adams gone and Allen Lazard injured, Aaron Rodgers will be without a big-time threat for the first time in his career and while the Packers should be able to run the ball, it’s more likely to become a shootout. If anything, the Minnesota offense should be even more energized under Kevin O’Connell. The Vikings have scored 34 points in their last two home games against their NFC North rivals and are 6-1-1 SU in their last eight meetings, including a 3-0 mark as home dogs.

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Vikings and the over.

* * *

LOOK BUT DON’T TOUCH

RAIDERS at CHARGERS

4:25 p.m., Chargers by 3 ½, 52

HANK’S HONEYS: First off, points will be flying everywhere so if you have to bet it, bet the over. After that, it’s tough. The Chargers spent the offseason bolstering the defense, including ex-Raider Khalil Mack, and the Raiders the offense, including the No. 1 trade prize of the offseason, WR Davante Adams, while hiring offensive mastermind Josh McDaniels as head coach. The Raiders’ biggest question mark is their offensive line. The Chargers can bring pressure but Derek Carr is adept at getting rid of the ball. Justin Herbert has been great in his matchups against the Raiders but the hook makes this a Vegas lean.

CAN’T HELP YOURSELF? Raiders and the over.

* * *

BEST OF THE REST

COLTS at TEXANS

1 p.m., Colts by 7 ½, 46

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Texans and the under.

CHIEFS at CARDINALS

4:25 p.m., Chiefs by 5 ½, 54

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Cardinals and the over.

BUCS at COWBOYS

8:20 p.m., Bucs by 2 ½, 50 ½

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Cowboys and the under.

EAGLES at LIONS

1 p.m., Eagles by 3 ½, 48 ½

IF I WERE A BETTING MAN: Lions and the over.

* * *

WEEK’S BEST BET: Saints. Avert your eyes. This could get ugly.

* * *

LAST SEASON:

Overall: 143-137-4

Over/under: 156-126-1

Best Bets: 13-8

Worst Apartment Ever? | Post Poppin' With Asia Grace (Video)

The typical New York landlord doesn’t give a fuck. That’s what TikToker Trina Rose learned the hard way when she encountered rats and cockroaches — and major flooding — in her $3,000-a-month apartment in Brooklyn.

You won’t catch Asia Grace from the Post picking up dead vermin. She called the trendy Williamsburg pad “disgusting” and “uninhabitable”. Worse still, Rose’s “greedy bastard” landlord raised the rent by $800 a month and then put the apartment up for sale for $4,700, she claims.

Australian Teenager Kuol Agreed To Sign For Newcastle In January

Newcastle United have announced that they have reached an agreement to sign much-loved teenager Garang Kuol, who will join the Premier League club in January.

The 18-year-old currently plays for Australian side Central Coast Mariners but the Magpies moved quickly to sign him ahead of a queue from top European clubs.

Kuol, who recently made his senior international debut for the Socceroos, arrived in the north east on Wednesday to sign the terms, with Newcastle announcing the deal will become official in January 2023 when the transfer window opens.

Speed ​​was key for Eddie Howe, with the Daily Mail reporting that Stuttgart had already made an offer, while Barcelona wanted him on a two-year loan.

He is believed to cost around £300,000 and complete an initial loan spell after joining Newcastle.

Kuol’s family is from Sudan, but fled to Egypt, where Garang was born in 2004.

The family lived in Egypt for a year before moving to Australia as refugees.

Her father, Mawien, and her mother, Antonita, worked as dry cleaners, while Antonita also had a job as a seasonal worker in a fruit factory.

Kuol Made His International Debut Against New Zealand This Week

And he is now on his way to becoming a Premier League player, as he told his new club’s official website: “It’s unreal.

“As a young boy in Australia, the Premier League is the main thing that everyone watches, but no one really thinks they’ll reach those heights. To be one of those people, to be in the position that I’m in, that’s It’s incredible.

“Now that I’ve signed for Newcastle I want to train hard, play hard, hopefully go to the World Cup and come back here.”

Kuol made his A-League debut for the Central Coast Mariners in April, scoring four goals in his first eight games.

He thrived under the tutelage of Nick Montgomery – the former Sheffield United midfielder.

Kuol made his debut for the Australian national in a friendly against New Zealand during the recent international break.

He was also selected in the 2022 A-League All Stars squad which faced Barcelona in front of over 70,000 spectators in Sydney earlier this year.

And now that he has completed his move to Newcastle, he has followed in the footsteps of his older brother, Alou, who joined Stuttgart last year.

Newcastle United sporting director Dan Ashworth said: “Garang is a very promising young talent and we are delighted that he will continue his development as a Newcastle United player.

“Our philosophy is to invest in our Academy and in exciting young players for the future, as well as players needed to make an immediate impact in the first team.

“We wish Garang well in his remaining matches with the Central Coast Mariners and we hope to see him back on the international stage very soon.”

Apple Shares Fall Following Rare Bank Of America Downgrade

Apple shares fell 4.9% on Thursday after Bank of America analysts gave the stock a rare downgrade.

Analysts lowered their buy rating to neutral, also reducing its price target from $185 to $160 per share. They said they anticipated “weaker consumer demand” over the next year and pointed to macroeconomic challenges.

The broader market was also negative on Thursday, but Apple’s fall was still greater than that of major indexes like the S&P 500, which fell 2.1% on Thursday.

The downgrade came on the heels of a Bloomberg report on Wednesday that Apple had told some suppliers to scrap plans to ramp up production of its new iPhone 14 after failing to see demand as high as expected. It also put pressure on Apple shares.

A second company, however, disagreed with the BofA rating. Rosenblatt Securities upgraded its rating on Apple from neutral to buy and raised its price target to $189 from $160, implying a 25% upside from current levels. He made the call after his survey of more than 1,000 American adults showed strong demand for even the most expensive new Apple products.

Rosenblatt questioned the production report, writing that there is “a recent history of comparable reports proving misleading when actual numbers are released.”

The Roof Of A Commercial Truck Flies And Causes An Accident In Lebanon
google news

A commercial driver in Lebanon literally flipped his lid on Tuesday after the roof of his van truck blew off on Interstate 89. New Hampshire State Police were called to the scene of an accident near the exit 17 earlier this week after a driver hit a large piece of metal while driving. Further investigation revealed that the piece of metal was the roof of a large utility vehicle that had flown off a truck. The truck driver only stopped briefly after the incident before driving off, but the victim was able to provide police with a description and license plate number. Officers from the Canaan Police Department then observed the suspect vehicle driving down Route 4 in Canaan and were able to arrest the driver. Police determined that the driver, Ross King, 40, of Houston, hit a bridge in New York City the day before and continued driving despite extensive roof damage and other safety violations. King was arrested for driving under the influence of narcotics and later released ahead of his court appearance in November. He was also taken out of service for 24 hours due to his condition and for having a fake logbook. The truck was inspected and taken out of service due to its condition. No one was injured in the incident.
